Rose and Dave, one of our first Poppy couples, literally tied the knot with a traditional Irish handfasting ceremony, overlooking the city of DC at one of their favorite restaurants, O-ku Sushi. They met at Virginia Tech, and after 5 years of being together, Dave surprised Rose with a proposal at Pippin Hill.
We worked closely with Rose as she planned her micro-wedding in September. She loved the idea of infusing her micro-wedding with organic wild flowers. Her bouquet filled with Cafe Au Lait dahlias, coral ranunculus, garden spirit roses, and winding greenery, evoking feelings of an English garden.
Against the backdrop of Union Market, the couple’s guests gathered for dinner around a long table, filled with burgundy, coral, and blue wild flowers. With small graceful touches, Rose brought together her micro-wedding in the most memorable way.
We look forward to working with Rose again as she plans for her full wedding celebration at Pippin Hill this fall.
